Recent respective form guides

Airdrie United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 in the wrong end.

Dundee's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The Dees's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Airdrie Utd. see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 12 points from their 11 games played so far, Dundee's 16 points from 11 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
